Back at it. The last few months have been crazy. Pat and I built a bunch of customer stuff. Which has been fun, but not left a lot of time for my personal project.
I’ve had this bus for a few years now. It was a 80’s resto lowered with IRS conversion and a adjustable beam. I lifted the suspension and installed big tires/crows feet wheels, along with an entire bare metal resto, custom mega hatch, shaved window, and dash. Getting really close to being done now.
We lost all the old build pictures in the great website crash of 2017. So here is where its at: I have the shell fully painted and assembled(it would drive with an engine). All of the removable doors/lids have been blasted repaired and bodyworked. They still need primer and more blocking. Which is where I should resume work…..but I’m feeling more excited to assemble my engine and get it off the bench. I had Eddie @ Painter’s build a 2276cc longblock a while ago. I have all the parts, now its just a matter of fitting tin, paint, and assembly.
